Ammo for shotguns which are a step above the Homemade Shell, the damage is higher though it is more expensive and requires a level 2 workbench. Considering the slightly higher cost but unmatched stopping power at close range this is extremely helpful to have when you are using any type of shotgun.
Remember to aim for center mass of targets for the highest amount of pellets hitting.
